Just to mention another solution (not as good in this example) 

drop if id==2 || id==215 || id==302 || id==420 || id==579

drop if inlist(id, 2, 215, 302, 420, 579)

If I have a dataset with 1000 observations (uniquely identified using
variable - id -), can I drop multiple observations using one line? I
know
one can drop observations that are say id>350 or <20, but if the
observations are all over the place could we still use a one line
command?

For example, instead of typing:

drop if id==2
drop if id==215
drop if id==302
drop if id==420
drop if id==579
...

Can I use one line to drop all the above?
